america's -- americans have waited long enough for the energy security they have been promised for decades. it was in 1970 when president nixon first coined the term "energy independence" and president since then have promised to deliver on the goal. and yet today, america and america's families are still filling their cars with fuel from deserts' that are half a world away. our economies still rides at the highs and lows of the world oil prices and our children are asking, will we still be behind the same old energy policy of the past four years, or is now the time for change? president obama has made nuclear that we are not here to do what is easy. we're here to do what is right. to make the hard choices, to succeed where others have failed by finally cutting america's dependence on foreign oil, building a clean energy economy that is more secure and more prosperous, and protecting our children from the dangers of pollution. since president obama took office, we have made great progress toward this goal. we have made the largest investment in renewable energy in our history and we're fig

and that -- america and the courts, the case on whether non-u.s. citizens can be denied a vaccine. today, 7:00 p.m. on c-span. >> flexible policies actually make employees more productive. instead of spending time worrying about what is happening at home, your employees have the support and the peace of mind that they desperately need to concentrate on their work. >> watch something on c-span that you'd like to share with friends? at a news c-span video library, you can search it, watch it, and share its. over one added 60,000 hours of video from yesterday or last year. -- 160,000 hours of video from yesterday or last year. >> up next, a former united nations ambassador john bolton on american sovereignty and the u.s. russia nuclear arms control agreement. this is just over an hour. >> we welcome those who are joining us on the web site and to ask that everybody in house check that cell phones have been turned off as a courtesy to our presenter. we will oppose the program within 24 hours on the heritage website for everyone's future reference and our internet viewers are always welcome to e- mai
: two champions of justice on the state of equality in america. >> not much has changed, or will change, for the folks at the bottom of the well. >> the opposite of poverty is not wealth. i think in america, the opposite of poverty is justice. >> moyers: stay tuned. >> from our studios in new york, bill moyers. >> moyers: welcome to "the journal". on this weekend, 42 years ago, dr. martin luther king jr. was assassinated-- gunned down in memphis, tennessee. many of us still have the images etched in painful memory-- dr. king standing with colleagues on the balcony of the lorraine motel, the next day lying there mortally wounded, his aides pointing in the direction of the rifle shot. >> everybody wants freedom. >> moyers: then we remember the crowds of mourners slowly moving through the streets of atlanta on a hot sunny day, surrounding king's casket as it was carried on a mule-drawn farm wagon; and the riots that burned across the nation in the wake of his death; a stinging, misbegotten rebuke to his gospel of non-violence. we sanctify his memory now, name streets and schools after him,
doing so would cause real conflict with america's foreign policy interests. i think more important for me than others because of my previous position. number two, whenever possible, we try to work with pepfor, and we have a very good relationship with them. i argued that he should allow those funds to buy the least expensive generic drug, and we reached an agreement which he honored, which is if the medicines that we sell in 70 countries that serve 2 million of those four million people greg treatment, that if they passed f.d.a. scrutiny, pepfore money could be used. my goal is not to go somewhere where my being there causes problem for american foreign policy, and working with the country on the ground as well as with the host government. if i might, senator, i think the work that bill and i do, and that many others do, is intrinsically good for america's foreign policy. look, it doesn't matter who is the president. you see now president obama being criticized by some of the people who criticized president bush who said he is not as different from president bush as i wanted him to
they reinvented one of america's iconic brands. but can this man keep americans lining up for another cup of joe? it's a "nightline" exclusive. >>> are you smarter than a 4-year-old? there's a lot more to kid's play than meets the eye. need proof? we sit in on the experiments that show us that your child may be a lot smarter than you think. >>> and, sweet child. top hat, sunglasses on, and the unmistakable guitar riffs. he needs just one name. slash is tonight's "play list." >> announcer: from the global resources of abc news, with terry moran, martin bashir and cynthia mcfadden in new york city, this is "nightline," april 2nd, 2010. >> good evening, i'm terry moran. we begin tonight with coffee, and the star of the massive multibillion dollar industry. whether or not you call yourself a starbucks fan, it is nearly impossible to avoid the coffeehouse chain. it is the world's largest. a daily pit stop for millions of americans. but starbucks is not without competition, and their phones are eager to see them fail, and that may have happened, if it wasn't for the man you are about to meet, who retu
? and what should america's government's relationship be to that country? we don't give foreign assistance to other countries for direct budget support. now that makes a lot of sense. when you first hear it, it makes enormous sense because we want to achieve certain specific examples -- excuse me, objectives -- and we sure as heck don't want to fund infective government. . experience as a physician with the health care system. if the end of this is, if the definition of success is they have their own health system and works as well as anybody could, given that amount of money, how or going to relate it to the government and how will the u.s. assistance program relate to the ngo program? to the ngo program? if you read the ghi report, there is a good description of what they did in bangladesh. you need to really work through this, i think. >> if i could ask a couple of things before we wrap up. africa has your doctors, fewer trained medical personnel than any other region and apparently continues to lose many of those who are trained to either north america or europe. i wonder how we can he
and chairman of one of america's most transformative companies. long after their own places in history were secure, both president bill clinton and bill gates made it their passion to write an impressive new chapter in an effort to solve some of the world's most pressing problems. fighting hiv/aids has long been on the top of that list, and during a polarizing era in american politics it has been the kind of bipartisan success story that defines our democracy at its best. back in 1999 and 2000 i was pleased to work with jesse helms, bill frist, and many partners from both sides of the aisle to pass comprehensive hiv/aids legislation that laid the foundation. today, thanks to these programs, over 2.4 million people are receiving treatment and nearly 350,000 babies of hiv-positive mothers have been born hiv free. that is a tremendous accomplishment, but it is still not enough. what is more, we have made great strides against malaria. this in turn has cut childhood mortality in some areas by as much as one-third. the global fund, where every american dollar is matched twice over, has prevented
jobs in america. work less? >> i would say in a given week i probably only do about 15 minutes of real actual work. >> the president pushing flexible schedules while millions are looking for any schedule for a job. is this the right message for a nation that needs to reconnect with the work ethic that made america great? and getting high on high fat? a new study claiming fadd fatty foods are as addictive as crack cocaine. is this just a move to whack america with a meaty junk food tax to pay for healthcare reform? the cashin' in crew is on the case. >>> plus, is this what 200 billion of your tax dollars buys nowadays? home prices still tumbling despite massive government spending. is it time to evict uncle sam and let the free market do the rebuilding? all that and ipad or ay-ay and ay pad. was the competition ereading before steve jobs could deliver the first i-pad. your money, you life, your show to stay ahead of the game. cashin' in starts right now. >>> the unemployment rate holding steady at 9.7% as american workers work harder than ever. but now the president is pushing for flexi
, was cutting people's taxes across america. we're also making investments in our infrastructure, from interstate highways to broadband networks. that not only creates private sector jobs, but is also creates the platform, a better environment, in which business can prosper. it's also what we did through the jobs bill that i signed into law just recently, a bill that cuts taxes for small businesses who hire unemployed workers, and that allows companies to write off investments in equipment, like some of the equipment that we just saw here today, and that encourages job creation by spurring investments in school renovation and clean energy projects and road construction -- all of which builds on the investments that we've put into place last year through the recovery act. so as a consequence of all these investments, we've promoted innovation in the private sector not just to create jobs, but also to help america lead in the growth industries of the 21st century. see, i want to improve the short-term jobs picture, but i also want to improve the long- term prospects for our economy. and
. this is important. i to say that to point out belly havthat we have some experience. america and on nutrition and providing cataract operations, a problem impacting the workforce in peru. we have done to 50,000 cataract services in peru. as a global initiative every year we try to raise health care money. we have raised $6.5 million to help improve access and child nutrition. in haiti, paul farmer at the un is going to try to do for haiti what we did in rwanda, build a whole system that the government can run. it is against this background that i want to say the following thing. i strongly support the global health initiative. and it is closely related to food security. i think the two things should be possible, supported hand in hand. i think the bill is well conceived. it focuses on developing systems in the 20 countries. it is the next logical step after what we have been doing. it focuses on reducing infectious diseases, increasing access to safe drinking water. it is user friendly. they want to have one place to treat everyone. this is a horrible struggle in many countries. there is an e
and suppliers, and these are all jobs helping america build batteries that will power cleaner cars and trucks. throughout the country we are already seeing an incredible transformation. before the recovery act, before i took office, we had the capacity to make less than 2 every of the world's lithium ion batteries. less than 2 bever. -- 2 every. we're going to be able to make 40 every of the advanced batteries right here in the united states of america. right here. [applause] so you can say one thing you are helping doing is catalyzing a new industry where the united states can help gain market share across the globe. that's the strategy we need. helping the private sector thrive in new industries, the industry of the future. now, this has been a harrowing time for our country. it is easy to grow cynical and think america's best days are behind us, especially after such a terrible crisis. and we have seen folks in washington trying to play both sides of this. and that's how it works in washington. but i think it is important to remember the failed economic polings that got us into this mess j
. i am reminded that america is great because americans are good and he was referring to the natural charity that took place in america that help people take care of each other and how we reached out and built communities. he found it quite extraordinary. i think, in the best of ways, the 2 w 0 -- be two of you are representing us in an extraordinary way. words do not adequately describe it. we thank you. it is really an extraordinary story. do any of my colleagues have anything else? >> if not, we are grateful to you. it did you very much we stand adjourned. -- thank you very much. we stand adjourned. >> coming up next on c-span, president old, speaking in north carolina about the economy and health care. following that, a look at the potential impact of the new health care law. then, another chance to see former president clinton and bill gates. >> this week, on america and the courts, a moot court on whether non u.s. citizens could be denied a life-saving vaccine. "america and the courts," tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. >> the minute of that the wall street firms were in
for america's foreign policy. . . >> it doesn't matter who is the president now. the interest of the united states and the challenges we face are sufficiently different from other countries that nobody is going to be popular in all these decisions. but i think we have to recognize is, we don't want to politicize our work, but we wanted to be reinforcing of the best of america. this is not complicated. when people think you care whether their kids live or die, they like you pretty well. they cut you a lot of slack. you can disagree with them on a lot of things. this is not complicated. i believe that we don't want to overly politicize what we do. the best thing we can do for america is to do a good job of these things that we do and avoid causing some real conflict with current american policy by going somewhere are doing something with someone that would trigger that conflict. >> mr. gates? >> president clinton mentioned his personal situation. my personal experience is that if you are rich enough, there will be some resentment, no matter what. [laughter] the u.s. is the richest country in
people put taxes across america. [applause] >> we are also making investments in our infrastructure. that creates private-sector jobs and the platform, a better environment for which businesses can prosper. it is also what we did to the jobs bill that i signed into law just recently -- a bill that cuts taxes for small businesses that hire unemployed workers and allows companies to write off investments in equipment. it encourages building on the investments that we put in place to the recovery act. we have promoted innovation in the private sector, not just to create jobs, but also to help america lead in the growth industries of the 21st century. i want to improve the short-term job picture, but i also want to improve the long-term prospects for our economy. in no area is our country more primed to lead them than in clean energy. i did not have to tell the people here at celgard about that. for the recovery act, this company has received a matching grant to expand the facility on the site, and to add another facility in north carolina. i know this bill has done the work that the go
into a baby beauty queen and exploit her. she has written about a man who flees the holocaust for america and becomes a grave digger. what has she not written about? she has a range of a modern shakespeare. i am human so i consider nothing human to the alien toomey. this might well be her motto. but as deeply interesting as to be the friend of a great writer i have been privileged to be over the last dozen years. we have offices right across the hall from each other. in what days was -- i would definitely say they are equally compassionate and curious and all embracing but where as a writer deals regularly with violence joist is easily shocked by aggressiveness. the woman is as savvy as the writer, is capable of sizing up a risk you're dubious situation. she may be pure but she is not naive. i have seen her suffer through books as i recall the composition of blond nearly did hurt in. she is a lot funnier than the writer. in real life joyce is a terrific teaser though a gentle one. joyce the woman is one of the most sensitive friends i ever had. joyce has friends everywhere. many of them a

their dangers was the first tangible sign many had that america actually did care about what happened to them and their country. he showed that side of america and his example should serve as an example not only for ambassadors but americans as a whole or anybody. his determination to work with the british or do everything he could to help the british to see that the alliance succeeded had a tremendous effect on the fact ehat it did succeed. af on his predecessor, joe kennedy, this great line after munich, kennedy says isn't it ovnderful the crisis is over? now i can get back to palm beach after all. tounew york times ran an bsitorial, one of the toughest and the biggest jobs, his mission was one of the biggest jobs the president can give. he has to explain to a country that is daily being bombed why a country safely 3,000 miles away fnts to help but will not fight. that is a difficult thing to tell a person whose home has just been wracked by a bomb. ow was the reporting of correspondence and newspapers. and web sites and tv. and what was left in france and ime from that period. >> it was ve
of that will help us with the problems that not just the united states of america but other countries are facing in purchasing madison. i think the non-commodity cost can be better managed with greater reliance on nurses and community health care workers and other delivery chains which are "too obscure to spend a lot of time on today. fourth, i cannot emphasize strongly enough how much i believe we should use this moment to send a clear signal to the world that we are moving away from a dependency model toward an empowerment model. we have to build capacity. 24% of the health-care problems are in africa and only 3% of the medical personnel are. we have to train and retain health care personnel in africa. fifth, prevention is still the key. if you look at the caribbean, where we started our aids work, in the last two years there have been no mother to child transmissions in at the bahamas. we are still reaching no where near the number of pregnant women who are hiv-positive with a medication that will -- it is 98% effective. bill is going to talk about vaccinations. they work and they are cheap.
>>> good evening from new york. the month of march we learned today not only saw america add jobs but was the best month for job creation in three years. republicans responded by asking why president obama is doing nothing about jobs. the numbers themselves are nothing spectacular on their own, but compared to the past two years they represent a seed change in the economic direction. 162,000 more americans went to work in march than did the month before. and it turns out revises figures show that january, too, had seen an increase in jobs, rather than the loss earlier reported. unemployment remains unchanged at 9.7%. speaking at a north carolina battery plant expanding at hiring new workers, president obama told employees a lottery mains to be done to bring america's economy all the way back. but we are beginning to turn the corner. >> just one year ago we were losing more than 700,000 jobs each month. but the tough measures that we took, measures that were necessary, even though sometimes they were unpopular have broken this and are helping us to climb out of this recession. we'v

of wishful filling post bowls of their posters. so america is ridiculed as a kind of paper tiger who stay will come. and just to talk about the military first policy which is the policy the north korean regime is now propagating. here's a picture of north korea right after kim ill son died in july 1984. you see the we've been -- weeping north koreans. now look at the skies. you have the grey skies which are a symbol of the changing times on the world stage. in other words, norge kim jong-il inherited a situation that was more difficult than his father had. this was the message the propaganda put across because they knew with a famine coming they could see the salmon on the horizon, they knew they could not present kim jong-il as the kind of all round figure who is just as good as economic growth as military matters. they knew they had to disassociate him from the whole economic problems as quickly as possible. they did this through the military first policy. the message of which was basically kim jong-il saying to his people, you know, i'd like to keep feeding you, but the threat from the

gangbusters. corporate america seems to be very healthy. does that mean they're running leaner and meaner? and they're more resistant? is that the sign? what has to happen for that to translate into jobs? >> i think that's a really good point. i think we'll feel like a two-speed america. for a while. we've seen a really strong rebound in the corporate sector that has been reflected in the stock market. wall street is getting happy. but it's not going to feel like that on main street for a while. one the interesting things that came out of the jobs reports is, even though people are working longer hours and being more productive, wages fell a little bit. so employers still have the upper hand right now. >> if you're one of the 15 million out there looking for a job, all of these charts are cold comfort for you. but we do live in a politically charged era these days. and the obama administration is quite proud of this particular graphic. it's all over their website. these are job numbers going back to december '07. on the red side on the left, steady job losses under the bush administration

the president. look, free speech is supposed to be alive and well in the united states of america, condemning violence-- >> it is. >> condemning vandalism we all do, but to say that sarah palin and the tea party movement is responsible for vandalism or threats is just a way to dismiss the american people and just dissatisfaction with the health care bill. >> so, jim, i'm going to turn to you first. seems that the mainstream media has been on a rampage the past week to tie sarah palin and tea partiers to violence, do you agree? >> i do agree and i don't think it's an accurate assessment of either palin or who's driving the opposition to the health care bill. the cbs poll must have killed them to release this showed by 34-53, the american people support-- oppose-- so 34% support. 53% oppose. usa today and gallop, americans think the democrats are to blame for the divisive discussion, the democrats usa today and gallop so that's three major polling operations all showing that the majority is with palin and against matt lauer, et al. >> kelly: at the same time at a dnc fund raising, the tea party
